Height restrictions on I-80 lifted

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Height restrictions that were put into place Thursday morning because of sagging power lines in central Iowa have been lifted.

Officials were warning drivers -- especially of semitrailers, motor homes and other high-profile vehicles -- about some low-hanging power lines across I-80 in central Iowa.

Although those lines have been raised, there are power lines in many areas across the state -- all drivers need to be careful.
